Match each of the high level language statements given on the left hand side with the most natural addressing mode from those listed on the right hand side.$$\begin{array}{clcl} \text{(1)} &\text{A[I] = B[J]} & \qquad\text{(a)} &\text{Indirect addressing} \\ \text{(2)} &\text{while (^*A\text{++});} & \qquad\text{(b)} & \text{Indexed addressing} \\ \text{(3)} & \text{int temp = ^*x} & \qquad\text{(c)} &\text{Auto increment} \\ \end{array}$$

1. $(1, c), (2, b), (3, a)$
2. $(1, c), (2, c), (3, b)$
3. $(1, b), (2, c), (3, a)$
4. $(1, a), (2, b), (3, c)$

$C$ is the answer.

• $A[i] = B[j]$;     Indexed addressing
• while $(^*A++)$;      Auto increment
• temp $=^*x$;       Indirect addressing

Ans C

Pointer, passing array as parameter- indirect addressing

arjun sir here increment will be operate on A or *A.

Isn't statement 2 is also using pointers for dereferencing A??

Priority of post-increment/decrement is higher than dereferencing operator in C...

@akash.dinkar12 okay i got confused between *A++ and x=*A++
